"There is a story, always ahead of you ..."

Michael Ondaatje

As a poet who also writes prose, I am perpetually bewitched by the narratives we devise to re-imagine ourselves and the lives of others. Stories made fresh with purpose and mystery.

Poem of the Week

Recipe for Cat


Not dog

nothing like dog

except a similar body


Season lightly as a rule

but add one gram of turmeric

which is anti-inflammatory


and gives the orange color

favored by Danes on their ships

which many of us now prefer


Neither shake nor stir

allowing the disparate molecules

to take their own sweet time


Chill thoroughly
